In Colorado, the Mesa Valley School District sent out emails to parents encouraging them to send their daughters to see a media presentation called, ‘Wake up Sleeping Beauty: Worship at his Feet’. The idea behind this is that young girls should strive to be ‘pure’ in mind and spirit in order to be worthy of becoming a good wife. The clear implication: the only proper role for females in society is to be subjugated in the home, subordinate to patriarchal rule.The good news: More than a few parents objected to their public schools being used to push this brand of conservative religious indoctrination. Fortunately, in an era of broadly shared social media, keeping a lid on this kind of corrosive gender manipulation is becoming more and more difficult for those who believe the proper role for women is to be ‘barefoot and pregnant’.
